Home » Junior Infants » Tally-ho!


We have been learning how to collect data in maths using the tally method. Firstly we compiled a class survey of our favourite cartoons. The choices were; Peppa Pig, Paw Patrol and SpongeBob SquarePants. The results revealed that Peppa and SpongeBob were the clear favourites with 10 votes each. We then practised one more tally within the class comparing boys to girls, so that we had a clear understanding of five being the magic number in the tally system.

Then we set-off to the car park with our clipboards and partners to tally the colours of the cars. There was some debate and discussion over colours, with white and silver causing some ambiguity! We found no green cars at all. The clear winner for this tally indicated that silver cars dominated our car park.
